“…then and gone…” – big…big in those 3 words….
I’ve read this stone over several times. Usually a widow maker is a heart attack. The then and gone also makes me think of a tragedy. The words pull me as I try to understand.
Barb, we call a broken branch caught in a tree a “widow maker.” But the intention of underlying feeling of tragedy is there.
Thank you for your explanation. I came by to read it again.
